A hearty welcome to Montreal’s newest yoga studio, Shri Yoga, opening May 7 in Westmount.
While the studio is new, co-owners Barrie Risman and Mona Keddy are very well-known Anusara Yogateachers in the community, and the dream of a Montreal studio dedicated to Anusara Yoga has been in the air for a number of years.
“Shri Yoga offers the technique and philosophy of Anusara yoga to serve all levels of practitioners from beginner to advanced, as well as in-depth study programs and teacher training in the Anusara method,” said Barrie Risman. While Barrie and Mona will teach all of the classes during the summer, in September the studio will feature Robin Golt, Montreal’s first Anusara teacher, who is now actively engaged on an international workshop circuit, as well as other Anusara and Anusara-inspired teachers in Montreal.
The studio includes a treatment room for massage therapists and other professionals, and will offer studio space for rental for workshops and private classes.
Shri Yoga will be inaugurated with an Open House, to take place on Saturday, May 14, from 1-5 pm. There will be free 30-minute classes at 1, 2:30 and 4pm. Also complimentary refreshments, door prizes, free gifts and more. The address: Shri Yoga, 4846 Sherbrooke Street, West, 2nd Floor (corner Victoria), Westmount, QC H3Z 1G8. 514-508-7474. www.shriyoga.ca
